The Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE) is delighted to announce a conference entitled ’The Future of Work: Philosophical and Economic Perspectives’, to be held in Rotterdam from June 22-24, 2022.

Confirmed speakers:

Denise Celentano (Radboud University)

Nancy Folbre (University of Massachusetts Amherst)

Anca Gheaus (Central European University)

John Roemer (Yale University)

Julie Rose (Dartmouth College)

Gina Schouten (Harvard University)

Daniel Susskind (Balliol College, Oxford University)

Kate Vredenburgh (London School of Economics)

Huub Brouwer (Tilburg University)

Willem van der Deijl (Tilburg University)

Markus Furendal (Stockholm University)

Nicholas Vrousalis (Erasmus University Rotterdam)  

There is room on the program for three contributed papers by junior researchers (PhD students and those who finished their PhD during the past four years).   

We invite papers dealing with economic, ethical, and political issues related to work, and changes in the job market as a result of automation and other technological innovations. These may involve, but are not limited to basic income, social justice, meaningful work, and taxation. We especially encourage the submission of interdisciplinary papers on these topics.

We have secured funding for this conference from the Society for Applied Philosophy and the Dutch Research Council (Nicholas Vrousalis’ Inequality Against Freedom project). Depending on success in obtaining further conference funding, we may be able to cover part of the travel, accommodation, and meal costs of junior researchers who do not have their own travel budget. Details on this will be communicated to those whose abstracts are selected for presentation at the conference. 

In order to apply, please submit a long abstract (max. 1000 words) accompanied by a short abstract (around 150 words) in one file anonymised for blind refereeing. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 31 January 2022. Submissions should be sent to [email protected]. Questions about the conference should also be sent to that email address. We aim to inform contributors of our decision by the end of February 2022.
